Tickets are on sale for another round, or rather several rounds, of pro wrestling entertainment in Queenstown.

Billed as the resort’s rowdiest show of the year, Queenstown WrestleFest takes place on the Saturday of Easter, April 3, at Queenstown Memorial Centre.

It’s again being staged by Southern Pro Wrestling NZ, co-owned by veteran local pro wrestler Marc ‘Hooligan Marcus Kool’ Perry — last year’s show, filmed by TVNZ Duke, was one of the last major events held before the Covid lockdown.

‘‘We are a hybrid of live theatre and breath-taking stunts with entertaining characters and storylines,’’ Perry says.

He’s taking on New Zealand native ‘Savage’, known as NIWA, who’s returned home from Mexico and has been creating havoc around the country.

There’ll also be two championship matches.

‘Undisputed’ NZ champion ‘The Big Man’, Jamie Tagataese, puts his championship on the line, while The Mega Powers will defend their SPW NZ tag-team title.
